Me and Legends Of Runeterra had been drifting away from one another, like lovers on flotsam tugged aside by merciless ocean currents. We’d ran out of surprises. The spark, so far as there was one, had gone. However now Riot have launched Runeterra for realises, and the 120 new playing cards included in patch 1.zero have spiced issues proper up. It’s free-to-play, and now could be an excellent time to test it out.
The brand new faction is neat. I’m a pirate now! A pirate who’s horrible at Expedition mode.
That new faction is named Bilgewater, who’re largely pirates, with some eldritch sea monster summoners thrown in for good measure. They don’t appear nice in Expedition mode, which is my favorite, the place you draft decks from a restricted collection of decisions. That’s as a result of a lot of their playing cards appear to rely on one another, not like the standalone beefcakes that may be present in different decks. Bilgewaterers are all about summoning cheat, aggressive items whereas blasting straight on the nexus with magical cannons.
Right here’s what they appear to be in surprisingly-good cartoon kind.
I’m decided to make them work, regardless of my Expedition difficulties. The sport looks like an unsolved puzzle once more, with overpowered combos ready to be found. Reddit already has just a few, in fact, together with this infinite mushroom loop.

I needed to verify the feedback to grasp what was taking place. They’ve acquired three Cloud Drinkers lowering the mana value of Vault Breaker, a brand new card, down to 3. Vault Breaker creates copies of itself, to allow them to play that infinitely to buff their mushroom man. That lets them infinitely improve mushman’s assault, BUT that’s irrelevant as a result of the true menace is mushman’s mushrooms. He pops a bunch of toxic shrooms into your opponent’s deck each time you solid a spell, so subsequent flip the poor sod on the opposite facet goes to attract a card loaded with tons of of deadly fungi.
What a fantastic sight to see. That is the magic interval, the place everybody remains to be figuring out what’s doable and Riot haven’t labored out what they should nerf, so I’d get in fast. Simply suppose, you can be the one pulling nonsense like this.
If you happen to’re after specifics, I already ran by way of a lot of the new stuff on Monday. The complete path notes are right here.
